I Warned You About Muslim Polygamy in US: The Kenneth Mitchell Story – 3 Wives in 3 Cities

By Debbie Schlussel

Over the last ten years, I warned you about Muslim polygamy in America, repeatedly on this site and elsewhere (including here and here).  I know for a fact that it’s going on all over the country and that Muslim men in America often marry multiple women in the mosque, but only one “legally” with a marriage license, so that they can avoid prosecution and their other wives can collect all kinds of Medicaid, AFDC, food stamps, and other entitlements.  And I’ve written about how Muslim men have gotten away–as several have in cases in Dearbornistan–with impregnating under-aged women, because they are “married” in the eyes of the mosque and Islam.


As Oprah and a hit HBO series (“Big Love”) consistently focus on fundamentalist Mormon polygamy in America, and as federal prosecutors continue to go after Warren Jeffs and his acolytes, our authorities and mainstream media, as I’ve noted, look the other way on Muslims who have the same marital and underage sex practices.  But with today’s Detroit Free Press front page story, perhaps this is changing . . . slightly.

Meet Dr. Kenneth Mitchell a/k/a Mustafa Mohamed, a successful Detroit-area podiatrist, who converted to Islam and was married to three women at the same time–two of them under the auspices of California and Michigan, which would qualify him for polygamy charges.  I bet, though, that authorities don’t go after him because he’s Muslim.

The one-time Lutheran Protestant converted to Islam in 2002, traveled to Saudi Arabia twice on the hajj, and also goes by the name, “Mustafa Mohamed.”

During a single week in August, the world of Faye Miller, a 51-year-old stay-at-home mom in Rochester Hills, came crashing down when she started to examine her marriage at the suggestion of her therapist.

Through Google and phone records searches she learned:

* Her husband of 10 years, Dr. Kenneth Mitchell, a metro Detroit podiatrist, already had a wife in California when he married her in 1999.

* And in 2003 he had married yet another woman [DS:  a Muslima, Shazia Malik], a podiatrist in Quebec.

Equally astonishing, Mitchell, 48, a practicing Protestant who belongs to a Lutheran church with Miller, had converted to Islam in 2002, taken the Arabic name Mustafa and traveled twice to Saudi Arabia on religious pilgrimages, according to court records.

Mitchell, who operates several podiatry clinics in metro Detroit, declined through his attorney to talk.

Unfortunately, his Michigan wife and victim, Faye Miller Mitchell (age 51 and a stay-at-home mom) must pick up the pieces.  She has two kids with him (the other victims of Islam here), didn’t know about his other marriages, and hopes he’ll pay $4,000 a month in child support.  Good luck with that.

The Feds are too busy to prosecute Muslims for polygamy, marital neglect and welfare fraud. Which is why this case is just the tip of a vast iceberg.

    OMG: Let this TRUTH also be Told!!!! on January 13, 2010 at 6:56 pm

This is not good.

If we don’t stop this now, we will inevitably be seeing a steady diet of Sharia based honor killings and FGM (Look this up if you don’t know what it means, it is too disgusting for me to spell out).

I_AM_ME on January 5, 2010 at 2:37 pm

I_AM, why should any one be surprised those who preside over own our Culture Of Death would welcome the Death Cult acolytes from abroad? And what makes you think we will stop it? The Diversity Visa program is alive and well.

And yes, that’s not good. At all.

NormanF on January 5, 2010 at 2:52 pm

I’ve read the Free Press article and unlike Schussel, I do not see any blame on a religious practice. I do not see a Muslim polygymist or a supossedly good Christian man–he was a practicing Lutheran remember. No. I see a LIAR. He can claim any religion he likes but he cannot claim to be a good or honest man.

And unlike Schussel, I don’t judge his actions as being based on religious beliefs because he really is not religious.

T: Yup, going on the hajj to Saudi Arabia–twice!–is definitely not a sign that he’s a religious Muslim. Only atheists go on the hajj, right? DS

    Hey lady, try reading it again:

    “Equally astonishing, Mitchell, 48, a practicing Protestant who belongs to a Lutheran church with Miller, had converted to Islam in 2002, taken the Arabic name Mustafa and traveled twice to Saudi Arabia on religious pilgrimages, according to court records.”

    This guy converted to Islam in 2002. He changed his name to Mustafa. The newly minted Mustafa traveled twice to Saudi Arabia for religious pilgrimages(not cheap babe). So, what part of this makes you think he was not religious or a Moslem? Islam not only tolerates, but promotes polygamy as a good. I do not think Ms. Schlussel is missing anything here, but rather looking at the facts and coming to the appropriate conclusions. The same really cannot be said for you.

Worry, RIF = Reading Is Fundamental. Those too lazy to do their homework shouldn’t pronounce on the subject. The point is the followers of Islam get special treatment not extended to other religious believers. We’re more offended by Mormons than by Muslims even though the former are patriotic and don’t run around plotting the demise of the country and blowing people up.

NormanF on January 5, 2010 at 3:27 pm

    Also, going full Islamic would have tipped off the woman that something was not right. Islamists are known to play double games when they need to.

    Worry01 on January 5, 2010 at 11:20 pm

While we’re debating the tainted ethics of polygamists impregnating young girls, the two leading religions in this sexual predator practice Islam and Mormonism, did get into bed in early 2001 in Yemen. When FBI COunterTerror Chief JOhn O’Neil tried to get his team back into Yemen to hunt down Osama Bin Laden and the terror plot for the US, the State Dept. refused him his and his team’s visas. However, Tolbert, a prominent Mormon, Yemen based no less, fronting and funding his personal religious agenda, got visas for their Mormon-Islam fantasy religious movie making efforts in Yemen in 2001. So guess which “Americans” were in Yemen when 9/11 went down. Not O’Neil, who perished in the WTC attacks on 9/11. Nope, a band of child rapists hiding behind “religion”. And, the good men and women of the FBI – as some have told me personally – are sick and tired of the FBI “Mormon mafia” within (look it up) hamstringing its anti-terror efforts – esp. after 9/11, and especially in NY and DC. And I will TESTIFY to that if there’s a country left after 2010.

Singh on January 5, 2010 at 5:11 pm

PS For years we have referred to him merely as “William of Arabia”. At the top, he’s as connected as they come. And yes, I have spoken with Mormon women who have “Left the Saints” (look that up too). They have revealed, and then some what does go on under the asupices of that “religion” condoned from the top. They live in fear of their lives.

Singh on January 5, 2010 at 5:21 pm

I don’t agree with the tone of this article. While there is no doubt that we should all be condemning this person, one should check making statements like “children are victims of Islam”. Its not fair. I think its the person that is to be blamed in this case. He obviously chose ISlam to make room for his perversions and make them legal. Its the individual that is at fault.

I don’t see how this disgusting man is any different from Tiger Woods. Both are married, but both cheated on their wives. One chose a religion to justify it, the other was just too arrogant to even conceal it.

rajesh valluri on January 5, 2010 at 6:08 pm

    Children are the victim of Islam. I can count the ways because I have seen it in myriad forms. Let’s take India, since you should be aware of it. Young girls. Not of Islamic faith. Way before 9/11, in the Indian NW HImalayan region, by the Line of Control, Kargil, etc. the artillery volleys from the Pak side targeted schools, hotels, civilian targets. Tourists were instructed to watch out for on the ground terrroists. They came (at that time) by night using tunnels or whatever, and the descriptions given out were of Northern Afghani or MIDDLE EASTERN looking men. They weren’t regular Kasmiri. They were Osama Bin Laden’s people, many imported from the MidEast, and they had 11 training camps near the India-Pak border. By day they came over, to the poorest villages, and picked up the poor girls, “converted them” to radical Islam and had them popping our Muslim babies. They went after any they could incl. the poor Buddhist girls. Using their religion they could “do” many girls at a time. It was and still is a shameful disaster of the region understood as far back as the late 1990’s not only in the US but also Russia. So try to understand how deep this is, and what a weapon “Islamic rape” is. This has nothing to do with a billionaire party man and his high rolling party friends who had free will, or his $300 million dollar richer wife who is laughing all the way to the bank, who married him knowing his worldwide rep as a party boy. It’s time ppl started learning what is really going on with radical Islam and how it has destroyed the entire next generation of e.g., Buddhist or Hindu villages in the poorest regions. The Islamics that do that in regions of NW India are Islamic fundamentalists, they have pictures of Ayatollah Khmenie or Wahabbi icons everywhere. There is no other version of Islam being pushed onto young poor girls except that one. (It is rape, as kidnapping/rape/marriage is no different from what Garrido did to Jaycee Lee Dugard). Rape has always been a weapon of war, and in my book, this is no different. Welcome to the hidden war of pure terror. Wake up ppl. Educate yourself with FACTS, not twisted logic.

    Singh on January 5, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    “While there is no doubt that we should all be condemning this person, one should check making statements like “children are victims of Islam”.

    How is it unfair. Islam, as a religion, has no problem with Mr. Mitchell’s activities. As you state later in your post, Mr. Mitchell chose Islam as a way to legitimize his activities, so how does that in any way make Islam look good? Also, the comparison with Tiger Woods really fails. For one thing, Mr. Woods never gave any religious justification for what he did. Also, even though Mr. Woods was plainly an adulterer, he did not “marry” or have any intention of marrying the women he was with. There is a big difference there.

    Worry01 on January 5, 2010 at 11:28 pm

    From your name, sounds like you might be Muslim? we have LAWS in this country, based upon our Constitution. IF those here do not want to live under those laws and that Constitution, they should be DEPORTED IMMEDIATELY!

    this “diversity” and “political correctness” garbage is destroying the culture of what was once a strong, moral nation!

    If you don’t like it here, you have NO RIGHT to change this country to suit you – get the heck out and go live in Muslim countries and LEAVE US ALONE!

    Litl Bits on January 6, 2010 at 11:32 am

      Litl Bits, the person I think you are replying to (Rajesh Valluri) is located in New South Wales, Australia, he is not even an American, he is an expat Southern Indian, really doesn’t sound Islamic, just overly bored and underinformed looking to sell his website scoring products to websites which get a lot of comments.

      Singh on January 7, 2010 at 9:38 pm

        Sing, speak for yourself buddy. You don’t know a thing about me, and I don’t need any referrals to my blog. I don’t sell anything on that site, but you would have known it if you actually looked at it.

        All I am saying is that one should not be side-tracking the issue by channeling our anger towards religion. Most people use religion as an excuse for the sins they commit. It happens that this person used Islam for that. We should keep our prejudices away and judge the issue with an open mind.

        rajesh valluri on January 26, 2010 at 6:37 pm

Duh, I think we need courses in cognitive clarity for some of your correspondents. The children aren’t victims? Duh, you’re not a victim if your father is married to two other women? Islam has nothing to do with it, when this belief-set sanctions and encourages polygamy?

But I guess I’m writing too hastily. After all, he is a doctor, and I’ve learned from some of your correspondents over the last couple of weeks that I must be more aware of the contributions that Muslim doctors make to society, like shooting up soldiers at Ft. Hood. Here’s another model Muslim doctor.

Little Al on January 5, 2010 at 6:32 pm

So HOW LONG was this 51-year-old woman married to this guy who was calling himself Mustafa and traveling to Saudi Arabia on religious pilgrimages? And she didn’t notice? She didn’t wonder where in the heck he was? She didn’t suspect he might be at least having an affair? She didn’t notice where the money was going? The guy was a freaking foot doctor!!! They don’t take business trips!!! They don’t have emergencies! I would expect my husband the foot doctor to either be at his office or be at home! How stupid IS this woman? Talk about the wife being the last to know…

OK, that said, let this be a warning to all of the unattractive American women who suddenly find themselves with a wildly smitten Muslim lover. NOT ONLY should you rent the movie “Not Without My Daughter” and watch it about a million times before your next date with Mohammed or Mustafa or whoever, you should also keep in mind that he will have NO inhibitions about having multiple wives. He is only desperate to marry you so he can stay in the U.S. I actually KNOW women who got taken in by Syrians, Iraquis, etc., who suddenly fell madly in love with women who hadn’t had a date in 5 years. They have these whirlwind romances, marry these guys against the better judgement of ALL of their friends and family, give the guys permanent resident status in the U.S., and then the hubby goes “home” to visit his family and gets married over there. Several Times. And convince their poor, desperate American wives that at least they are Wife #1. While she is working hard here in the States and her money is going to support extra wives in the Middle East.

Debbie has written about these women before. Listen to her, people!!! Debbie is the #1 source for intel on the Muslim invasion of the U.S. and their tactics!

DG in GA on January 6, 2010 at 11:21 am

    Reading all of this info and trying to absorb it…my comment only is to say that I do NOT condone his behavior in the slightest but, he was born in the US and raised here and lived his whole life here. He was married and had children and later in life if he actually did convert to Islam it didnt take away the person he is. I’m not at all happy about this article and hearing these things about him,and as I stated not happy with the wrongs he’s done. But I am shocked at the whole scene here… everyone else judging him and his motives etc. Its not any of our business, his poor wives that have had to pick up the pieces of their lives and move on. What about his sons who have to live with this embarassment. And his life is probably in shambles too. I guess he brought that on himself but at the end of the day (Or his life) I should say, God is his judge not us. I feel terrible for his wives and sons for what they are feeling but I also know that he must feel bad too, if not for the feelings of everyone involved, but then that he was caught. I dont believe
    he changed his name to have this religion convert, but if that is what the record shows then I guess so.

    I’ve known him all of my life since I was 5 years old and never once has he been mean or malicious to girls, woman or any woman of authority, and that icluded my Mother. He was always respectful, generous and kind to my family and me, and I’m saddened greatly about this. The only reason I say these things is to say about the comment that
    says watch that movie “Not without my Daughter” I understand where your going with that statement and I would say it too if I didnt know him.” And even though I have a really hard time believing this article as true, I still know the person he is and he would never hurt his children or hurt a woman that he loved by taking his sons to another country. Everyone has their own thoughts on this which I respect but if everything is to be told then it should be at least true. Mr Mitchell was born and raised in the US,lived in California his young life, went through school in the Bay Area and literally took up residence on my parents couch many times in my young life. He is soft spoken and loving and good natured and I’ve always known him and thought of him as my brother. Please keep in mind none of this is written to excuse his behavior if he did these things, it is only to share a side of him that will make people understand why his wives love him or married him as was asked. If he werent my brother practically I would have married him, he was kind gentle and always sweet to me, and he was like my brother. It just makes it so hard for me to believe he did these things because I know him, and I would never have thought this…ever!!! But I’ve only known one wife and I didnt know the story of their life after I moved away. So, in closing I only ask that people leave their comments knowing that he is a real person too and the things that are
    being written are for purpose of being sold, and DRAMA sells…
    meaning not everything you read is always going to be 100% true. I for one am saddened for his families that are suffering over this as I am for him. I hope he is able to make amends in his life for his actions to his sons at least and to himself because I believe this will haunt them forever.

    Many Blessings to all

The same thing is happening here in Canada. There was an incident a while back — a car full of woemn/girls wound up in an Ottawa canal. At first it was alleged to have been an “accident.” later it proved to be more sinister. And, it involved polygamy. The so-called “sister” of the “wfie” was, in fact, another wife. (And there are Imams in Canada who openly marry men to multiple wives.) But who — Who — does the Canadian state go after? (or half-assedly “go after”). It’s Mormons in British Columbia. And, now the BC Supreme Court is to rule on polygamy (and whether or not it’s truly ‘an offense”). (Ultimately, this will probably reach the Canadian Supreme Court.) And my guess is that Canada (as was the case with gay marriage) will be one of the first “Western” nations in the world to recognize polygamy (and there will, no doubt, be Leftists Liberals heralding this as a grand accomplishment in the name of Women’s “Rights.” It’s just a matter of time…as Canada ever further retreats into another Medieval Dark Ages of the 7th Century variety.)

J.S. on January 6, 2010 at 11:52 am

    J.S. Not only is the Islamic forced “polygamy problem” ( a politcally correct term for kidnapping/rape/forced “marriage”) documented in India since before 9/11, it is a tool they (terrorists) have LONG useD in Mexico to gain access to the US as an illegal Mexican immigrant, and I know of it in Brazil, since Al Qaeda had bases in Brazil as well that I know of. I am sure there are other countries but those are two I have researched afer 9/11. The question is, if any American thinks they will be safer after this pm’s annoucements that the buck stops at the desk of a man put into US power by Islamic terrorist money, which has been running the Chicago political machine since 1992, that would be right before the first WTC bombing.

    Singh on January 7, 2010 at 9:33 pm

Listen all. I am a very proud muslim woman. Please STOP talking about islam in such a negative matter. There is good and bad everywhere you go. But to blame a GOOD, PURE, PEACEFUL religion is just wrong. Please learn more before you JUDGE cuz that’s just IGNORANCE. Yes Islam allows a man up to 4 wives but it is also very strict about it. It saves the woman from being taken advantage of. For example, Allah states in the Holy Quran that a man must be so fair and treat them exactly alike and THEN He says If a man cannot treat them EXACTLY ALIKE then he must not do it because he will be punished in hereafter for it. But like I said it protects the woman because if a man really wants her, and instead of just having an affair and dumping her, he MUST give her her FULL lawful rights as a wife and mother of his children. Also in older times men were ones who go out and earn a living and women were home and with so many wars and so many men dying it was an obligation on men to marry more than one so that they can be protected and provided for. What we see today is not that TRUE ISLAM but men who marry more than one women for sick, unholy reasons. These are SICK MEN and in no way religious. They will have to answer to GOD for their actions. So please put the blame where it belongs. Study the true islam with an open mind and stop IGNORANCE AND HATE so that we can live together PEACEFULLY AND CIVILIZED.

Stop the Ignorance on January 11, 2010 at 9:53 pm

Islam stopped being a religion of peace when it obliterated it’s own Muslims, as in slaughter, those with deep knowledge of the estoeric practices of it in 1925 after WW1 and not only made it illegal in Turkey but everywhere else. 3 years later the rise of the MB began the festering violent reign of Wahabbism, which has hopelessly infected the religion. Read your history, if you really want to Stop the Ignorance, Mr/Ms Stop the Ignorance, understand how this all connects.

Singh on January 16, 2010 at 6:07 pm

Their is nothing wrong with sleeping with more than one women ,
that is part of living in harmony with your environment if you choose to live that way .While it may upset christians they must understnad the religious teaches are totally different.

I do not see it also unethical for a man to sleep with a women that is devloped as a women .Mna Kings ,princes and countires today allow their men to marry a fully devolped young women.Look at Miss Universe just turned 18 would any man say they would not like to sleep with her .My granfather married a young women when she was 15 they looked like the perfect couple he commited no crime becuase that was the custom of Puerto Ricans untill the colonalist adopted laws that make it a crime to allow the lowest a women .

In America forces its men into poverty ,crime and dehumanizinf situations their is no housing fo us ,goos forbid we steal to maintian our relationships or kill someone then your a bad person .

When men can not live in accordance to their nature then you create a society of unhappy people ,most of the men I know are not happy this country doe snot provide living wages for most of its people in poverty .

Chris Robert on March 3, 2010 at 11:15 am

In Islam, Muslim men can marry upto 4 wives at one time and father children from them. The children know who their father is and the man takes responsibility for their needs. In America this would be illegal and looked down upon by society.

Outside of Islam, men marry one wife and many times have 2-3 affairs over the course of their married lives. They might even father children whom they neither acknowledge nor support. In America this is quite common.

What percentage of children born in America are bastards who will never know the name of the person who fathered them ?

In Islam you can have 4 wives but if the man has a “girlfriend” outside of marriage then the punishment is most severe.

There are no bastards in Islam.
